The Terrapin is extra special. Not the most energetic version, but certainly long, poignant, and tender. The 22 minute playin' that follows makes the this two song-pre drums second set one of the finest jams of the early Brent era.
This is just a really fine evening of the Dead. Enough said take long listen and enjoy!

Another Fall Classic From 1979
Quick Review...well, I tried: Sound is extremely good. I think it's better than the other source. The mix is about as good as it gets too. Five Stars for sound. Performance is just exactly perfect. Vocals get a five. Maybe Jerry doesn't stretch out enough and nail every song but he comes real close. Check out Candyman and see for yourself. I'm being picky here. Four Stars. Setlist is somewhat typical for this time period since Brent is still learning the vast Dead songbook but this show offers some change from the usual China>Rider, NotFadeAway songs from other Fall '79 shows. I guess that's Four Stars for song selection. Alabama>PromisedLand is kick-ass and don't miss the Jack Straw>Deal combo that closes the first set! Weir is very strong throughout the night: Me & My Uncle-> Mexicali Blues, Looks Like Rain, Playin' In The Band, Good Lovin' are all exceptional. Jack-A-Roe is another first set highlight. The Dead loved doing this song, didn't they? Even Jerry thinks it's a good Jack-A-Roe, just listen to the end.
The second set may not be as phenomenal as say, 10-25 New Haven but there's nothing to complain about. I've listened to this show three or four times, played it loud last night on my home theater setup, listening for errors but I couldn't find any. All I found was a solid show. Thanks to the usual cast of characters here at the Archive. Well done again!
This is a great download. If you like 1979, it's a must download!
